COSMETIC SURGERY ROGUE OPERATORS: HEALTH MINISTER CALLS FOR INVESTIGATION

MEDICAL school graduates are calling themselves cosmetic “surgeons” after completing half-day training courses in breast enhancements and Botox, prompting calls for a wide ranging ­overhaul of the industry by concerned health professionals and terrified women who believe they have been misled on the operating table.

NSW Health Minister Brad Hazzard last night ordered an investigation into rogue operators “flouting regulations” after the revelations.

A special investigation by The Saturday Telegraph also revealed NSW’s ­billion-dollar cosmetic surgery industry has been likened by one former clinic nurse to a “wild, wild west” operation with a bizarre loophole that allows anyone who has graduated with a medical degree and is a registered doctor to call themselves a cosmetic “surgeon” — even if they have not undergone any specialised training.
